A repost of our update on 14 January:
We saw a question yesterday in Twitter from someone, and now we can’t find the tweet. 🙁 But we did note down the query:
.@esaoperations why won't there be more ATVs?
What will replace their capabilities? Thanks.
Regardless of their source, they’re good questions!
ATV-5 Mission Manager Massimo Cislaghi replies to the second point:
There no 1:1 replacement to the ATV, but rather there will be a redistribution of its capabilities among the rest of the ISS servicing fleet, i.e. Dragon, Cygnus (when back in operation), HTV and – of course – Progress, this last vehicle being to my knowledge the only one capable of performing ISS reboost and refuelling.
